OEvolve @ OList.com
OEvolve is an informal e-mail list for Objectivists (and others) interested in the proper application of evolutionary principles to diet, fitness, and health. Its purpose is to facilitate discussion and information-sharing amongst Objectivists about the practical sciences of cooking, nutrition, fitness, health, and more.
Any Objectivist committed to eating an evolutionary-based diet may subscribe and post to OEvolve. Such diets encompass low-carb, paleo, and traditional diets -- including Cordain's Paleo Diet, Sears' Zone Diet, Eades' Protein Power, Weston A. Price's Traditional Diet, and all the myriad variations thereof. Any Objectivist seriously considering switching to such a diet is also welcome to subscribe and post. Moreover, non-Objectivist evolutionary eaters, as well as Objectivists merely curious about such diets, are welcome to subscribe to the list, but only as lurkers; they cannot post. OEvolve is not moderated, but members who violate its rules will be subject to moderation, if not unsubscribed.
OEvolve is managed by Monica Hughes. Monica received an MSc and PhD in forest pathology and mycology from State University of New York, College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) in 2008. She is the founder of Free Agriculture - Restore Markets (FA/RM) and blogs at Spark A Synapse. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
OEvolve was launched in October 2009. At present, it has over 300 members.
To join the OEvolve mailing list as a poster, you must meet two criteria:
Note: You do not qualify as an Objectivist if you consider yourself to be a libertarian (or associate with the Libertarian Party), advocate revising Objectivism (like David Kelley's "open system"), or associate with the false advocates of Objectivism (most notably David Kelley, Nathaniel Branden, Barbara Branden, and Chris Sciabarra).
You can request a subscription to OEvolve via this web form. You must briefly explain how you meet the list's criteria for membership: please write a few sentences. If you are confused or doubtful about the subscription criteria, please do not request a subscription without first e-mailing the list manager Monica Hughes.
To join the OEvolve mailing list as a lurker, you need only meet either the first or the second criterion. Please indicate that you wish to only lurk -- and why -- when requesting to join the list.
The list is hosted on Google Groups, so subscribing requires an account with Google. (It's free and easy to create.) Click here for instructions on managing your OList subscriptions.
After you subscribe, please post an introduction, including your name, location, and a paragraph or two about your interest in and experience with evolutionary-based nutrition and health.
